. he points to the obama administration ideology being at fault both before the attack and afterwards. that's important to understand. before the attack we clearly didn't suspect it was coming. that's due to an intelligence failure in the sense we looked for information and couldn't get it or if the ideological reason applied they didn't think we needed to ask for the information. al qaeda has been defeated, the war on terror is over, libya is a great success, what could go wrong. obviously it did go wrong. but if the administration from the top down isn't processing reality, this is the kind of tragedy you. bill: you are pinpointing the ideology. so this was their mental thinking about the condition of the arab world or that region or libya specifically do you think? >> i think very broadly. it goes to president obama's view of america's place in the world. it's a corollary to what he thinks america' domestic structure looks like. it made him in the case of libya and kay row and elsewhere -- libya and cairo and elsewhere in the region to see the islamists' rise. it was a brother and
policy wise? >> the obama administration has never had a foreign policy. bill, he's only had this assortment of confused, naive initiatives poisoned by ideology, deformed by politic, driven by politics, and the only thing these initiatives in the foreign affairs realm have had in common has been their failure. if you look from benghazi to beijing, in this afro-asian realm of crisis, there is not one troubled country, not one, not russia, not china, certainly not iran, afghanistan, pakistan, certainly not israel, not one country in which relations are healthier or more constructive than under george w. bush, and that was a pretty low standard. >> bill: what do you say, colonel hunt? >> i think the specificity of the policy when you look at libya in which we wanted a lower american profile with the weakest profile we've had security since 1979 first ambassador we had killed failed. in afghanistan issues we have people training, killing us. that is not -- and the surge was supposed to crush the taliban. the commander on the ground reports says the taliban is back. he talked abou
concerning the obama administration's investigation of the attack on our consulate in libya. first, the white house is refusing now to comment on reports that washington denied requests for more security prior to that september 11th attack that killed four americans in libya. white house spokesman jay carney says he will not comment on a situation under review, that's a quote. second, reuters is now reporting that administration officials received about a dozen intelligence reports in the hours after the attack suggesting that this was terrorism. despite all this, days later, the white house dispatched u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice on a round of talk shows claiming these attacks were spontaneous and incited by an anti-islamic film. andy card is a former white house chief of staff under president george w. bush, and he's with me now. andy, so now the administration is going silent on it, saying we're not going to respond to this bombshell report out of congress that this is from the house oversight committee saying that they've got a bun p of whistleblowers who are now sayin
the obama administration has stepped up drone astacks. u.s. officials say the aerial strikes are an effective strategy and have killed hundreds of militants that fueled the insurgency across the border in afghanistan. washington also insists civilian casualties are rare. members of code pink say they held fundraisers in the u.s. to pay their way over here and got close to pakistan's tribal region, about an hour away. this is a place many u.s. government and military officials never dare step in. pakistani authorities said they had to stop them for their own safety. even so, code pink not done making nose against the u.s. drones and planning on more protests this week in pakistan. reza saya, cnn, islam bad. >>> the spacex rocket blasted off from cape canaveral last night launching the first commercial flight to the international space station. the unmanned capsule is on its way after separating from the rocket. dragon is carrying 1,000 pounds of cargo and this is the first of a dozen nasa contracted flights to resupply the space station. talk about launching a big one, new orl
reporting they had about a dozen intelligence reports, the obama administration did, suggesting it was al-qaeda-related militants who were involved in this. so we're talking by wednesday at the latest. it was sunday that susan rice went out on the talk shows, sunday. and not just one, and not an inadvertent comment saying, i think, look, it's confusing, it could have been one of a number of things. it was all the way -- you know, sunday, five days later when she came out and said, i'm telling you, it was spontaneous, it was about the video, it wasn't a preplanned thing. they were ruling out things in addition to ruling -- how does a u.n. ambassador get sent out by the administration? >> she shouldn't have been. if, in fact, and i suspect the administration knew that susan rice was going to go out there and talk to the media on that sunday, that's preplanned, and there was lots of communication with her before she went out, they should have told her what they expected her to say sw what they anticipated the questions to be and potential answers. tend not allow her or encourage her to answe
percentages. has the obama administration been successful at branding the medicare plan of the republicans as voucher care and are senior citizens moving away because they're afraid of the medicare changes? >> the ryan budget plan existed in terms of the 2010 election when republicans won 65 plus seniors by 21 points. part of the dynamic that exists here is, in fact, seniors are really unhappy with president obama's health care plan. what you see is this significant concern handling medicare, four years ago republicans would lose that by 25 points. now it's down in low single digits where republicans made significant progress. that is reflected in the medicare poll. >> why are senior citizens in the polls moving away from mitt romney toward barack obama. >> i guess i'm not seeing that in the survey the way you are. when i take a look at issue handling and medicare and seeing how we dramatically neutralize that issue, i'm not seeing it the same way. >> i think medicare is one question. the other question is senior citizens and who do they support? the movement is definitely toward barack ob
obama. the fact is this administration has a terrible record on foreign policy. you now have hillary clinton trying to rush extra money to egypt when i would frankly suspend all aid to egypt. >> sean: $450 million more. >> it's inconceivable. a house committee chairman has put a hold on the money. that's the right thing to do. there's no reason to send the head of the muslim brotherhood another penny. the president in egypt the head of a radical organization dedicated to pushing the united states out of the middle east. >> sean: the first presidential debate is on wednesday. the administration has been spending most of their weekend trying to lower expectations for the great orator obama, even the president saying, well, romney's good, i'm just okay. does that work if you're a sitting president? >> look, incumbent presidents who lose debates are in big trouble. this is a president who has the begins of a new recession, that with all the economic reports wednesday, thursday, friday are pointing to a in recession. the philadelphia federal reserve is pointing to a new recession. the man
-- >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. >> -- the obama administration still can't get its story straight as the cover-up continues. >> this is turning into something not short of banghazi-gate. >> newt gingrich breaks down the mixed messages coming out of the white house. >> what did president obama do the same day of a terror attack on american citizens? he campaigned in las vegas. >> sean: and a blistering new political ad targets the anointed one's response to the banghazi terror attack. plus, the candidates collide in less than 48 hours. >> this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> sean: the president tries to downplay expectations and predictions from team romney as we preview wednesday's debate in denver. >> i just created a huge screw-up. >> sean: all that, plus my exclusive interview with former california governor and hollywood legend arnold schwarzenegger. we are 36 days from election day and "hannity" starts right here right now. >> sean: this is a fox news alert. congressional hearings on the banghazi attack are about
critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advisers. he has continued to emphasize that and to say that vladimir putin will get nothing from me. barack obama has emphasized as one of his major foreign-policy accomplishments a reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, whether it is sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a much more significant issue as there have been problems with pakistan that made it difficult for us to get in and out, or having a new nuclear arms limitation agreement with russia. so that's a substantive difference. there are others as well. when it comes to some of the core middle east issues, how to st
me to finish. it appear that's the obama administration is working with muslim brotherhood and al ga q dan the mideast to systematically eliminate the regimes in all the countries and also christian anti-and judaism, and lib, you know, obama administration working with al qaeda giving them support, intelligence and weapons, you know, to take out what was left of a dave if i's government and it looks like it is going on in sir why, now. wouldn't that be iron fick we found out that our ambassador over there was actually killed by weapons supplied by us to al qaeda? it kind of reminds me of what was going on in the '9os when we sent our marines in there to distribute food and they were attacked by the identifying elements that were in that country and al qaeda was involved in that. >> host: we are short on time. glaes ahead. stephen? degrees there is no rid of the sinaean where that the u.s. would supply arms to al qaeda. certainly, that would not be in anyway in the u.s.'s interest. in fact, what i alluded to earlier, the criticism from the syrians who are fight is that the u.s. and ot
to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of united states of using a government program to manipulate people do not get a job, to be dependent on the government for services? impressed. we are a few minutes and -- >> let me finish. pressed we're a few minutes and and you have now three times call me crazy on observing that the president has expanded government dependency. >> you are saying he is manipulating american civil democratic. -- so they will vote democratic. >> let's talk about the issue of benefits. in 1960, 20% -- of federal spending went to individual spent -- payments. this year, 65% of federal spending goes to individual payments. i would suggest we do have a problem with government -- >> we had a downturn in the economy. we of hard times, p
the problems for the middle class and that the obama administration has started to pull it out by its boot straps. and so the obama campaign just in case we didn't get that has a statement that says that the romney campaign is taking this entirely out of context. it's obviously in looking at the full transcript that joe biden was talking about the fact that the middle class was buried under failed bush policies. and of course they say romney/ryan would change all that. however, this is an opportunity, which the romney campaign is taking to say, you know what, we agree with you. the middle class has been buried and we're going to change that. imagine this as kind of the dry season in the west in the summer. and any match or any lightning strike is going to start a huge fire. and that's what's going on here the closer we get to the election. >> this is coming a day before the debate. how detrimental could this be for the obama campaign? >> i'm sure the obama campaign is thinking this is a headache they don't need. as you know in the past joe biden has given them a bunch of headaches. they li
slammed the administration himself saying in a statement, president obama's consumer financial practices bureau is the most powerful and unaccountable bureaucracy in the history of our nation. instead of focusing on economic growth, president obama is once again focused on creating more regulation, government and more washington gridlock. joining us is alexis goldstein, a former vice president at merrill lynch and an occupy wall street activist and dedrick muhammad from the naacp. i found this moment frustrating as you can maybe tell. what's really interesting to me is there are real critiques to be leveled at dodd-frank, critiques that didn't go far enough, but republicans have tried to pull off this thing and mitt romney was doing it in the debate where he's kind of appropriating the left critique of dodd-frank and not going far enough in service of essentially defending deregulation and the status quo. here's one example of this. this is mitt romney claiming that dodd-frank enshrines the principle of too big to fail. take a look. >> dodd-frank was passed and it includes within it a nu
be a $1,700 tax on american families, and that number comes from the obama administration. >> 30 seconds. >> let's stipulate we are not going to do cap and trade. senator fisher says human beings are not warming the planet, and i say we are. i say it is a compelling problem and we need to address it. we need to have a debate about how we are going to address it and what our strategy is going to be. otherwise, we are going to wonder why we did not do anything about it. >> a question for senator kerry. >> there is a lot of discussion about lowering tax rates by limiting deductions on loopholes, but one person's loophole is another person's deduction for mortgage interest or state and local taxes. would you favor eliminating or reducing any of those, or would you offer other specific changes? >> the big four are markets reductions, and i think you can scale it back. i think there is a great pay off through simplification. you have got to believe it. you have to believe simplification can generate more revenue. if it generates more revenue, you cannot do it. i think there is a huge pay off t
of the obama administration say the united states weakened its own hand by agreeing to the 2012 deadline, and the administration officials say the deadline is crucial. meanwhile, the nato secretary general says the retreat of western forces from afghanistan could come sooner than expected, adding that their recent green- on-blue killings have been successful in sapping morale. turning to presidential politics, a judge rules whether to keep intact pennsylvania put the new law requiring voters to show photo id in the election. there is a supreme court order to will no later than today at 5:00 p.m., five weeks before voters go to the polls. homeland security is reporting that one border patrol agent has been killed and one wounded in an arizona shooting. we'll keep you updated. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> when nation's chief in trade, and china has cheated, i will do something the president has not been willing to do, call them on the carpet and label them a currency manipulator. >> we brought more trade cases against china in one term in the previous administ
of relief. not just in the obama administration but many who said, look, the deadline is next spring, next summer. there isn't going to be a possible israeli military strike before the election. but iran is doubling down. just today prime minister ahmadinejad back in tehran gave a press conference. and he said this, brooke, i'll quote him "we are not people to retreat on the nuclear issue. if somebody thinks they can pressure iran, they are certainly wrong and must correct their behavior." at least in terms of words, which actions are more important than words, but in terms of words not backing down at all. from is going to be the crucial question for the next president whether it's barack obama or mitt romney. >> absolutely. erin burnett, thank you very much. >> good to see you, brooke. >> good to see you. see you tonight
. if god forbid barack obama is reelected and harry reid remains majority leader, i will fight every day to defend texas and free-market principles. i think there's a very real possibility that the obama administration will go directly after fracking, which is opening enormous oil and gas resources. >> one minute left, and we want mr. sadler to jump in. >> mr. sadler, you will join a most republican delegation from texas. how can you be effective or most of the members disagree with your policies? >> i do not in most of them -- i do not think most of them would disagree with my policies. i've the history of bipartisanship. it is a record of honor and distinction. i was named 10 best. i was named by your newspaper one of six best legislators. every single law was passed in a bipartisan manner, with a republican governor, republican senate, democratic house. i have always worked together in a bipartisan manner. that is the value of my record. when you are looking at these two candidates, this is a person who has never been elected to anything. mr. cruz. i have a record you can look at. bi
obamacare trying to investigate the obama administration. and this is exactly what would be predicted. so what we have is separation of parties, not really separation of powers. because when you have unified government, you don't have oversight. and what we need to address is how do we get the benefit of oversight that you do get when you have divided government without paying the immense cost which is the near impossibility -- at least in our time now -- of passing response bive legislation. responsive legislation. >> i just have a question about kind of, like, the amendment process. so, like, our constitution's had hardly kind of any amendments, and some of them are kind of big like the fact i can vote. [laughter] and i just, like, the fact that i can vote, the fact that black people are no longer considered property, those are huge changes to, like, the philosophy of the constitution. and i don't know if they actually, like, even succeed to see how it's even the 14th amendment thing i thought didn't really change things for a long time. do you think that in a new constitution that an a
that the proof of the failure of the economic policies of the obama administration was in the fact that 50% of graduates cannot get jobs, that one in six americans are living in poverty. >> arianna, i thought all of those statistics were very compelling because they fit into the narrative that he had painted. and the narrative was that we could do better. this is not acceptable what obama has laid out or done in the last four years and there was an optimism to romney which could date nobody has really seen. the third part is something that i refer to as the bedroom test. it's also the kitchen and the living room. who do i want in my bedroom at nighttime or first thing in the morning for the next four years or the next eight years, and the answer was after last night, at least, that i'm comfortable with mitt romney. he's smart. he's in command of the facts. he knows what he wants to do, and he can be in charge. i think there was a comfort factor last night a lot of people had not seen. arianna said it, it's the old mitt romney or maybe it was john harwood, it was the one that everybody who
. as yet what are the noteworthy aspects of the last four years in the obama administration how much policy has been driven from the white house? some presidents give lip service to the cabinet government and in power and their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious to get a second obama term what we see the continuation of the pattern in which romney, how do you think that he would write things in terms of the relationship in the department and the white house? >> i think we have strayed some distance from the government in the sense that the white house staff has been built up with the lawyers of folks that had to cushion the president from the departments and agencies. sallai compare and contrast just be kind of low-level staffer under ronald reagan on the advanced staff and seeing the universe of high-profile kavanagh members who interjected at least from what i could see more directly with the president and now we have lawyers that kind of cushion the president and the deputy chief of staff of policy or whatever the case might be. and i think tha
. the long-term unemployed, and those jobs that were lost under the bush administration that president obama has restored in manufacturing and the like, the key number for them is, who do i trust to take my long-term unemployment needs, my middle class family's needs, to the next level? so i think that the combination of people just trusting president obama more, if you're middle class, and that he has delivered on what he said he would in terms of getting us out of this hole is a powerful -- >> murphy doesn't buy that. >> no, that's their message. but i think we're missing the biggest thing that's happened in the campaign. economic things out of washington is one thing. but 80 million people finally got an unfiltered look at mitt romney, and they liked what they saw. and i think you'll see credible polls this week showing significant movement in the swing states and a much closer race. that's the big factor right now. >> let me put this in a different format, because we all sit in washington and get all these numbers. the average american goes outside and says, ok, 600,000 part-time jobs, 1
potential implication is that it could prompt for example moscow or in the future even romney or obama or beyond that administration to be able to rethink the commitments without the rest of the world. with that, turn it over to you. >> thank you, travis. i'm here to talk about information warfare. information warfare is important because it crosscuts all the different campaigns that we've been talking about. the land, air and sea in the missile campaign. the chinese it's also important because they view information and the ability to use information and the ability to deny information as the primary or the foundational criteria for whether you win or lose on the battlefield. but before i get to much into the information more for let me talk about the pla concept operations to inform the warfare. the chinese are looking to fight a war that has been called a quick war what resolution. they have looked at let's say the falkland islands and the 1991 operation desert storm and they have come to determine that battles are fought with just one campaign. it's not like world war ii were the of
welcome to my pastor, dr. jeremiah wright, jr. where's he at? there he is. that's him. >> senator obama then warned of a quote, quiet riot building in the african-american community in the wake of hurricane katrina and other factors which he said the bush administration was neglecting. as we said, this tape isn't new, only part of it is out there, and the hyping of it may have as much to do with politics and little to do with content. we'll see. more is supposed to be released later tonight. joining us, paul begala who advises the leading pro-obama super pac and gloria borger. also, the founder of your black world.com and eric erickson. paul, what's your reaction to all this? >> you know, a long time ago, a veteran journalist by the name of john king was with the associated press and i was complaining about something they weren't covering. he pointed out they had already covered it. he wrote the word news on his notepad, and covered up the s. it's a five-year-old speech, cnn covered it five years ago. maybe it's shocking. it turns out, i follow this more closely maybe than the right win
